    Since i discovered Tyler guitars i´ve almost stopped looking at others :eek: I own one, and have played about 9 others. I loved them all, but specially one: Dan Huff classic.
    This guitar is almost impossible to find used (i never buy new guitars, well, almost :D ) and the price was frightening...but i thought it deserver the effort, sold a couple of guitars and...she´s on order for me.
    Any of you owns one of these? I´d love to know you oppinions

    ;)

    What's the deal with the Dan Huff? How is it different?

    I see you have an AT100! Cool! :AOK

    I dont have a Dan Huff model Tyler - but I recently picked up a James Tyler Hollow Studio Elite Burning Water guitar and I am enamoured with it. Light weight at 6 lbs - a neck to die for - and wonderful tone from both the two Strat pickups and the bridge humbucker. It took me years to get over the headstock design - but it isn't so bad in person - and the quality of these guitars is amazing. They aren't cheap, as you have pointed out, but they are inspiring guitars, they just make you want to pick them up and play, play, play...oh and the trem is the kahoonas as well.

    Hmmmm...nothing major.
    Alder body, rosewood board on maple neck, booster, 2x duncan classic stacks and a Duncan JB and three push-push buttons for different wirings, one for each pickup.

    About the AT100, on the first post i said i sold two guitars to buy this one...guess one :D

    Bplexico, i´m curious about how do hollow ones sound, i´ve only played solid bodies :)
    You know, after a couple of days i began to love the headstock too. :D

    Hi Urkoman
    Was just wondering if you received your Dann Huff Tyler yet? I have one of these guitars, I got mine back in 1999, it's my favourite guitar, i love it.
    Let me know
     
  6. I'm jealous! I want a Dan Huff Tyler.
     
  7. But you can sure recognize them from the back of the stadium when someone is playing one.

    As i said in the first message, i tried a Huff, i almost never buy new guitars, and after playing her a couple of days i sold two guitars and ordered her without a doubt...guess why? ;) :D
    Stunning, no, STUNNING guitar. Fantastic feel and tone (ohhh i love that neck), and the mini switches give nice options, specially noticeable on the singles (on- raw, nice amount of output for a single, off-very 60´s strat, amazing cleans).
    I´m in love.:eek:

    Does your Huff classic have the 3 No series/parallel buttons and if so, when the button is pushed in, is that series or parallel?

    Yes, she does, but i´ve made some changes since stock. When they were pushed there was less gain, so i guess that was in parallel and when unpushed was in series.
    I changed the Duncan Classic Stacks for two lindy Fralin blues Special. As the two first switches were useless with a real single coil, now the button 1 is a bypass for the booster, and the second is a bypass for the tone circuit :AOK
    I´ll soon change the JB soon also, probably for a Suhr.

    I have a Dan Huff. I ordered it without the painted headstock and I'm not crazy about gold hardware so I went with chrome. This was my #1 guitar for years. Recently my Tyler Classic has been getting all the love but I doubt that I'll be letting the Huff go any time soon.
